Restore the pre-upgrade backup and enjoy.  You'll need to move any 
post-upgrade recordings to MythVideo or use one of the legacy, 
unmaintained scripts to import it back into MythTV (and suffer all the 
issues the partial/bad data will cause).  I highly recommend MythVideo 
or just deleting and re-recording the new recordings.
